Experiental Learning in Queens

May 24, 2010 at 1:15 pm 2 comments

I’ve heard some good things about the forthcoming Outward Bound-run middle school on Metropolitan Ave. Several people who attended an open house there related that they were impressed with the enthusiasm and commitment of the people who are developing the school. These same people remain cautiously optimistic that the school will retain its can-do spirit, rather than succumb to burnout or the DOE, and that their kids might get in via the lottery.

If you have any information about this school, please post a comment to share what you know.

The other school in Queens offering experiental learning is the Queens Paideia School, which was formed by several Forest Hills residents and has been running in Long Island City since last September.

Nice to finally have some real educational choices in our borough.

    Acceptance letters were passed out last week. I hope this school promises what it says during it’s orientation meeting. It is disappointing that the Expeditionary School does not offer any honors classes but I am excited about students learning as a team (crew) and taking learning outside the classroom. Another note, the founders talked about the school having mandatory school uniforms. My son was not happy about that prospect. haha…
